Addiction

I am more than a little ashamed to admit that I came home from my Spa Getaway weekend harboring an addiction. 
I never meant for it to happen.
What happened is...I got bored.  THEN I got curious.  Isn't that the way with addiction?
Before I knew it, I was flying high with my newfound crutch to get through life, and before long, I was hooked. 
I think a part of me was always worried it would happen, but you never think it will happen to you.  It's always "some other guy/girl", right? 
As of this moment, I don't know of a twelve step program for people like me, so I'm making my own. 
Step 1:  Admit you have a problem, and own it. 
So, I am here to let ya'll know that I am hopelessly addicted to...
Kindle for IPhone. 

I blame my sister, Boogs, really.  If not for her, I never would have known that such a thing existed.  Ignorance is bliss, and all that.  But, she just HAD to introduce me to a virtual cornucopia of literary entertainment that is LITERALLY at my fingertips. 
My first taste of it's awesomeness started with my very first purchase...
And I couldn't put it down.  I finished reading it this morning, and promptly purchased the second book in the series, unbeknownst to Roon. 
I think it's a pretty safe bet that by Friday morning I will also be investing in the third book. 
Beyond that, who knows!  If any of you have suggestions of must reads with my newfound obsession/toy, let me know.  Or don't.  You might not want to have to admit to Roon that you were one of my drug dealers... 

By the way...I know you're all itching to see pics from my weekend, and I promise they do exist.  However, apparently what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas, because I forgot to take my camera, so all the pics are in Boog's possession.  I will share them when I get them.  I promise.  Okay...I'll TRY.

I'm also going to try to get all caught up over in your little corners of the web, but things are gettin' all kind of corny (of the candy variety) at my house today...so I can't promise anything.  Just know that I'm still here, and that I still love you all, even if my rounds are not complete today.

Oh no! This was a horrible post. I have heard nothing but good things about these books and this just put it over the top. I don't have time for another addiction!

Glad your trip was fun

Oh crap. I totally forgot all about the candy thing... I had good intentions, really I did...

aubrey said...

And let me know what you think of the next two books. I read the first one and I thought it was creepy...and I haven't bothered with the next two yet.

AND you should read the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare and Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater.

Seriously, you should NOT ask me for book suggestions....I have way too many.

and I knew that existed because my husband got a Kindle last Christmas and I loved it so much I found Kindle for PC so I could read the books because he wouldn't let me borrow the Kindle.

Jennifer said...

Oh, and Aubrey, I have the entire Hunger Games trilogy. It's pretty good. Creepy, yes...and I get angry at some of the characters. If you want to borrow it, just let me know.

I am addicted to this game called WordUp on my phone. My sister is too & she steals my phone every time we are together (which is A LOT). She has beaten my scores... it totally ticks me off LOL.
I did your candy corn thing weeks ago. I am still deciding if I should post. It is really lame. In my head it was supposed to be different, cool, exciting. Ehhh oh well.

Hey. You read them on the phone? Doesn't it run the battery down? Or hurt your eyes? No?

MiMi said...

Emily turned me on to The Hunger Games quite awhile ago. They are totally creepy, scary, maddening and wonderful! I couldn't wait for the last one to get here---I had pre-ordered it and was quite upset that I saw it on the shelf at work BEFORE I got my copy!

Also--The Mortal Instruments are fantastic, but the first book in the prequels is even better!
